Golden Empire Sam’s RV Group

Our October camp out was great fun at the Almond Tree RV Park in Chico with nine rigs in attendance. Beanbag baseball was one of the many games we enjoyed playing. We also toured an interesting manufacturing company that produce aftermarket fuel tank systems such as larger replacement fuel tanks, toolbox and fuel tank combos, etc.

If you are interested in attending one of our camp outs, please contact our membership chairman at 530-477-1799 or cell 530-263-2035. We meet Monday to Thursday on the second week of the month with luncheons held in December, January and February. We are a friendly group and welcome new members.
